Ice & snow can upset a small plane's weight & balance even when it's parked. This V-tail Bonanza was built in 1968 & I found its situation rather interesting because with all that heavy snow on its nose it still tipped onto its tail.

Nice shot... just goes to show that weight and balance can be affected by some very strange happenings.

Look how far the main landing gear struts are compressed. There's a lot of weight on that airframe.

The tail would gather more snow as it is a V shape.
